Re: Newsweek

I agree with Andy. The killers are to blame for killing. But Newsweek was extremely irresponsible and created enormous problems for our military and diplomatic efforts. And knowing how the nutcases would use such a story — true or not — Newsweek had a responsibility to get it right. As for getting the leaker, my guess is that this did not come from the Pentagon. The story said “sources tell Newsweek …” My guess is Isikoff tried to get the Pentagon to sign-off on it, but couldn’t.
